I just wanted to let everyone know that Tim Albee’s book on the making of Kaze: Ghost Warrior is OUT and I have just received my copy.
I haven’t had time to read much yet, but here’s a quick chapter list:
1: Production Stills
2: The cast of Kaze, Ghost Warrior
3: The set of Kaze, Ghost Warrior
4: On location with Kaze, Ghost Warrior
5: The script
6: The shot list
7: Filmmaking: The union of all arts
9: Pre-pre production
13: Technology solutions
16: Production management
17: Soundtrack, the “Invisible Anchor”
18: Final Visuals
19: Editorial: The final polish
20: Media output
21: Let it shine!
Overall it looks like a really insightful book and I’m very excited to start reading it. Upon flipping through the pages I came across a side note story about how Tim’s cabin and all of his equipement were nearly destroyed during a flood of the Tanana river. Talk about hazardous working conditions! I thought 3D modeling and animation was a “safe” job.
I think the book is available everywhere now, but if not I know you can get it from the wordware site. I think the URL is:
